LABOR, LIBERTY, LAWLESSNESS-
The thrce-worded title at the head
of this article has no allusion what
ever to any necessary or supposed
connection between labor, libeity
and lawlessness. Labor is honor
able and dignified, whatever the
conventionalities of society may
think of it. In aristocratic commu
nities, the laborer is lcgaided as per
taining to a low oulcr of mankind,
and so accustomed has he been to
.be addressed and spoken of in that
way that he has almost coinc to be
lieve it himself. The result is that
he loses his self respect, although
he by no means loses his faculties.
It gradually but surely grows upon
him that the labor of his hands is
bringing to himself or his family no
adequate returns, but is piling up
for his employer wealth, and luxury
and reckless extravagance, Feeling
that he has nothing to lose, and
smaiting under the sting of oppres
sion, he lushes headlong into nihi
lism, determined if he cannot help
himself, he will have the satisfaction
of executing vengeance on his op
pressors. European laborcis gene
rally regard propeity and govern
ment as the parents of oppicssion.
To the one they have no claim, and
in the other they have no voice, and
they know no remedy but to dcstioy
both. Thus despotism, nihilism and
communism flourish side by side on
the same soil. The most effective
method European powers can adopt
to abolish these elements of destruc
tion that threaten to involve society
in n common ruin, will be to
abolish themselves by sweeping away
landlordism and every other ism that
lecoguizes any distinction of class
and rank not based upon merit.
The artificial distinction by which
the mere accident of birth confers
upon a man honors which he has
never won, emoluments he has never
earned, and power over his fellow
men which he can use only to abuse,
is a state of society that cannot
hold together against the gathering
forces of the age.
Iu fine contrast with the cast iion
divisions of society into upper and
lower and middle classes pi availing
in the old civilizations of Europe,
are the fiee institutions of the Arneii
can continent. From the Arctic
Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico, and
from the Atlantic to the Pacific,
labor is, in thcor' at least, its own
master. The laboring man is in
vested indirectly with legislative
powers. The ballot is a recognition
of his integrity, a proof of confi
dence, and begets a sense of res
ponsibility. Class and rank distinc
tions were not abolished, because
never established. The humblest
aitizan or laborer feels that in pro
viding for his family, he is not, like
his Emopean fellow workman,
raising up sons of toil to don the
harness of servility, but has the
proud consciousness that the avenues
to wealth, honor and position are
open to any member of his family.
Government is recognized as a pro
tector, not as an engine of exaction.
As a rule, the laboring men of
America are law-abiding, intelligent
and conscious of their responsibili
ties as well as of their strength.
'Under these circumstances, the in
flammatory catchwords of European
anarchists meet but scant courtesy
among the working men of America.
1 . . . The stvle of laborer devcloncd under
f V vfree institutions as compared with
" the specimens produced under the
St cliviue right of, kings" syatems
of Europe, is well illustrated in the
parades recently seen on the streets
of Chicago. The Emopean bred
anarchists paraded on a Sunday with
red flags meaning Wood with mot
toes, "Down with nil laws;" "Gov
ernment is for slaves;" "Private
property is theft;" "Our civiliza
tion is powder, lead and bullets;"
and other sentiment of similar im
port. A few days later the Labor
Unions pniadcd without the red ling
and piratical mottoes, and passed
"The organized mechanics and
workmen of Chicago, on this, the
fust celebiation of the labor national
holiday, deem it due themselves and
the public to announce that they
know their rights, and will maintain
them at all hazards. They prefer
the ballot to the bullet, reason to
rulllanism, united and intelligent
action to meaningless violence as the
agency best calculated to remove
the evils of which they complain.
The means that may be justifiable in
ihe despotism of tlie Old World are
unwarranted and out of place in a
free republic where the franchise is
the inalienable right of every Ameri
can citizen, irrespective of color
and nationality, and they are un
willing to aid in the destruction of
the institutions of our country, the
hope of the oppressed of every
clinic, which their valor and patrio
tism have secured."
These arc the sentiments of leal
nobility. They are the expiession
of the opinion of the men to whom
the country is indebted for its
wealth, and on whom it can fall
back with perfect confidence in
times of danger. With such a class
of workingmen, this Kingdom of
Hawaii could take high rank among
the nations, in everything that con
stitutes true greatness. The authors
of the above lesolution are not the
sort of people developed by the con
tract labor system. And while that
system exists, no reliance can be
placed upon the permanency of any
institution founded on the united
strength of the bone and muscle and
mind of the Kingdom. The sooner
the system ofser vile labor indissolubly
connected with contract labor be
comes a thing of the past, the
sooner will the foundations of the
social fabric of this nation be per
PROHIBITION REASONED ACAIN.
Editok Bulletin : According to
your correspondent "Nota Bene,"
Mr. Townseiid " like would-be re
formers " in general desiring to
create a sensation or prejudice
against rum "unfairly omits to
mention some of the crimes commit
ted by persons in their cool sober
senses." One is led to hope on
reading the first paragraph of
"Nota Bene's" letter that ho is
going to supply the j omission ; but
possibly he found it hard to string
together a list of crimes of violence
such as Mr. Townseiid quoted, and
set them down to " persons in their
cool sober senses."
But Nota Bene has a clencher for
prohibitionists in an extract from
Harper's Weekly, " an authority
on the' subject." Harper's "Weekly
is no more an authority on the pro
hibition question than the paper
from which it quotes ; the Cincinnati
Commercial Gazette, which, being
an organ of the Ohio whiskey ring,
vents the peculiar, language of the
bar-ioom on Governor St. John and
his supporters: a "high authority"
truly to Hank any statements in
The article in Harper's Weekly
does not contain a single reflection
upon the character or motives of
Governor St. John, it deprecates the
weakening of the Republican ranks
by tho desertion of the tempcraiice
voters, and justifies tho inaction of
the Republican party on prohibition,
by the alleged results of a " careful
inquiry into the working of tho pro
hibitory law in Iowa." In the cities
and large towns we are told "the
liquor traffic is openly or secretly
carried on," and much more in the
hame strain, concluding with,
" Nnluially the authorities of the
chief cities in the stato think that a
license law is preferable in every
way to the prohibition law." This
sort of reasoning is nuturally what
would be expected from the whipper
in of a great paaty, contemplating
defeat from prohibition stragglers.
But let usseejwhat are the facts. I
find the following in the Christian'
Statesman of May 7, published at
"The Union Siqnul bays that
Des Moines, the capital city of
Iowa, which one year ago had sixty
saloons, paying 00,000 into the city
treasury, now has not a single open
drum-shop. One saloon keeper who
predicted that tho law would be a
failure has to-day a line of 1,750
hanging over him, and he has quit
the business. That tho enforcement
of the law has become an issue iu
municipal as well as stato politics, is
evidenced by the fact that at the re
cent city election 'enforcement'' can
didatcs were elected in nearly every
The whiskey men are ever assur
ing the public that prohibition rather
increases drinking and saloons, and
yet somehow they don't seem to
favor the help it gives them.. For
years we have been told that liquor
was more common iu Maiuo than
anywhere else, and yet the Grand
Army meeting recently held in Port
land could not get a ration of grog for
love or money. A statement that
the prohibition law in Kansas was a
dead letter has been copied into
nearly every paper on the Pacific
Coast, but a few months ago a com
pany of over fifty Kansas editors
visiting Oregon read the lie, and
nailed it, in the Orcgonian of Port
land. The veracity like the logic of
the whiskey 'business can only of
necessity be, as Iago would put it,
The following from the Toledo
(Ohio) Blade will show tho spirit
animating the state of Ohio now with
more truth than the ex-Mugwump
and Hater's Weekly together:
"However, rum is quite another
thing. Its ravages are felt quite as
much in the homes in the country as
in the dwellings in the cities. There
is not a hatnlcl too 'small for it ;
there is not a farm so remote from
the highways of trade, but what its
cold finger reaches. The brewer and
distiller have been for years push
ing out their infernal wares, with a
persistency born of avarice, and
wherever man is they have their
customers. There is scarcely a
family inthe country that does not
mourn a rum murder ; there is no
community that has not its tale of
shame, sorrow, and distress, caused
directly by rum. Men of the great
est intellect and men of the lower
grades, have alike fallen into tho
hands of the rum-maker and seller,
and suffered from the domination of
the appetite they have caiefully
"It needs no argument to con
vince any one not 'interested in the
profits of the horrible trafllc, of its
enmity to the human race ; it needs
no special pleading to convince, any
one of the necessity of doing some
thing to stay its murderous hand.
This necessity comes home to every
father, every mother, every brother,
and every sister in the land.
"Every method has been tried to
stay its ravages, and all of them
have failed but one. Licensing the
sale of liquor has never affected the
evil a particle. It has in some cases
confined its ravages, but, in fact, it
has added to its powepof evil. The
licensed rum-shop has the sanction
of the law, and therefore a sort of
respectability, which enables it to
draw within its serpent-like embrace
the better classes, while the lower
grades of men find no difficulty in
getting their supplies illicitly. To
license, no matter 'how high the
license, is to confine their course to
fewer channels, but it increases the
volume of the destroying streams.
"Moral suasion has accomplished
some good, but what can the plat
form, the press, and the pulpit do
against the personal efforts of the
unnumbered thousands whose busi
ness it is to seduce the young and
thoughtless? What can moral
suasion do for the young man or
boy who has the devil's agencies
constantly at his elbow?
"There is but one way, and that
is absolute prohibition. It is a dis
ease which admits of no milder treat
ment than extirpation. Prohibition
lias accomplished its work wherever
it has been tried, and everything
else has failed."
But suppose all the false state
ments relating to the -failure in-enforcing
the prohibitory law in Iowa
were true, what would it prove?
Just this, that the people had legis
lated in defence of society, and a
number of men either singly or by
combining were for the money gain
it would bring them plotting to defeat
the law. Just what the legion of
opium smugglers here are doing, the
whiskey smugglers in Iowa arc do
ing, and with the same reward when
caught, fine and imprisonment.
The concluding paragraph of
Nota Bene's letter, contains the
kernel of the subject. "That a pro
hibitory law (or any law) can never
be enforced against public senti
ment," is quite true, but I demur
to the statement that "the senti
ment of towns and cities is against
prohibition," and I ask your leave
to reply to these propositions in a
future issue. I). M. C.
